    Another piece is supply and demand. It is hard to believe now, but before tablets, phones etc. The demand was low. Digital pinball exposed tons of new people to the hobby who in turn wanted the real thing. In the 90's and early 2000's games were everywhere and dirt cheap. Having multiple companies all battling for the small markets dollar is why the early 90's is a golden era with stellar quality and games.
